Graduate profile

Leah Cameron Leah Cameron

Bachelor of Nursing

Nursing is one of the most rewarding careers available, according to Leah Cameron.

"It gives me the opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives, whilst giving me a passport to travel and further learning."

She made the decision to study at Massey because of its reputation as one of the top nursing schools in the country.

“Massey nursing graduates are highly valued and well prepared to work in a wide range of healthcare settings. From my past three years as a student nurse I experienced a programme that is well integrated and provides the clinical expertise and theoretical knowledge required to work as a Registered Nurse in New Zealand and internationally.”

Leah said every clinical experience was unique and it meant she was constantly developing new skills, which she can apply both in the workplace and throughout her life.

"The best thing about learning at Massey was the exciting opportunity to work with and learn from the best lecturers within their chosen fields, whether that is within nursing, sciences, or social sciences. It gave me such a good theoretical grounding and has challenged me to become the best nurse I could be."

In her opinion, the values needed to be an outstanding nurse are: compassion, confidence, respect, and commitment, as well as a passion to improve health care services in New Zealand through leadership and teamwork.

"I hope to contribute to the world through furthering my nursing education and continuing to provide the best nursing care possible to each and every client."
